What Are Your Best Video Game Bargain Finds?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What Are Your Best Video Game Bargain Finds?

Gaming can be a fairly expensive hobby, especially if you end up buying most games at launch, though there are some good deals to be made. Steam sales, PSN Deals, Xbox Live deals and buying second hand games can easily make that $60 worth a couple of games.

What are some of the best gaming deals you got your hand on in the past?

For me that would be getting Knack and Bioshock Infinite remastered for 5 Euro each. A really sweet deal especially considering the overall gaming market in my country. Most PS4 games will never go below 5 Euro unless you buy in bulk.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

"Humble monthly bundle" is a great bundle almost every month:

This month Dark Souls 3 is already worth the €10 / $12 and the additional games are just a bonus.

 



There's been lots of good deals over the years. Most recently, I bought Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for $10 last November. For comparison, launch games here are $80. Of course, it was made free with PS+ a month after I got it. Ha.

I don't think anyone's ever going to beat a friend of mine's. He went into a random supermarket once and was just checking stuff around, when he found Super Mario Galaxy 2 there, and bought it for... R$2. (probably around $0.70 in dollars at the time) I still find it hard to believe despite how many times I've heard that story.

Personally, I don't think I've had too many bargains over the years as I'm usually always buying new releases. So I guess $10 for Metroid Prime Trilogy is the best I got.



Bought a supposedly defunct N64 on a flea market two years ago for 8€. The console was working just fine. I guess 8€ still isn't that great of a deal compared to some of the others, but I was happy back then seeing as N64s would already cost up to 40 - 50€.

I bought Splatoon for regular price 3 years ago.  It was a best deal for me.



On top of my mind, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom for like 3 bucks. I can also add the Gears of War 3's Collector Edition for 10 bucks; it was basically new save for the fact that someone had redeemed Marcus' dad skin already.



Whenever I go to half price books I buy 5 to 10 DS or earlier Nintendo handheld games. Always only 1 to 2 dollars each. Have a couple hundred now.

All you have to do is wait a few months, a bit more a bit less depending on games and prices almost always go down. The last thing you wanna do is play video games on day one of their releases.
Video games publishers count on the fact that people are way too impatient and they tap on people's need to play right now. When you see how some video games can be played when their download is not even fully made, you realize how extremely impatient people are.

As a rule I NEVER pay a game more than half the full price but often I pay even less than that. I usually wait for games to reach a third of their day one price. So for a AAA 60 euros game I never pay more than 30 but more often than not I wait for the game to get to around 20 euros and that's when I go for it.

So I cannot give you a title of a specific game because ALL my games are bargains.

I know a friend of mine who "rented" a game, and since he took so long to finish the game, the owner decided that he'd just give the game anyway.

The "best" deals are always the ones that you get for free.
Assuming you think in terms of value/price.
